- In a news release that cited recent NPD numbers Microsoft was quick to point out the fact that Xbox 360 hardware sales make up the biggest chunk of consumer spending with more $13.7 billion in total. For the calendar year of 2007 the 360 raked in $4.8 billion, the Wii $3.5 billion and Sony's PlayStation 3 comes in third with $2.2 billion. What that breaks down to is an astonishing 45 percent of console sales could be attributed to Microsoft's system over the last calendar year. Not too shabby.
Despite all of these numbers being thrown around there's no denying that Xbox 360 is still in a distant second behind the Wii in terms of number of units sold.
